Dressed in a striking Vera Wang gown and Nerida Winter hairpiece we think Louise would make a perfect covergirl. It takes a confident and visionary bride to choose black blooms and a hairpiece as striking as this one....definately two of my absolute favourite shots of the year showing a bride that works with her own style and creates an extraordinary result....

We were commissioned to cover another beautiful elegant wedding in March at Milton Park, Bowral. I love that place, the gardens are divine and the photo opps are endless. Polka Dot Bride featured a lovely story on Lauren & David's wedding today and we have added some more behind the scenes pics below for you to be inspired by as well. Lauren's gown was designed by Steven Khalil. Lauren's style reminded me of a mix between Natalie Wood & Jacqueline Onassis.
Lauren walked down the aisle to a string quartet playing "The Rose" by Bette Midler. Love that song :)
Floral arrangements on the day were designed by Twigg & Blossom (now known as the Potager).
Those gardens...mmm....so many hidden gems to explore before the celebration dinner with their family & friends.
Milton Park allows its guests to choose from multiple ceremony areas and enjoy an elegent reception lunch or dinner on site. No need to go anywhere else..bliss..
Some last pics with the girls before dinner in the dining area.
The bridesmaids wore beautiful dresses that whilst different in design shared the same colour palette from Studio Fabrics.

Are you planning on becoming a winter or summer bride? Or perhaps an autumn or spring bride? Our busiest months of the year used to be March & November but a few years ago the lines started to blur between what was popular here in Australia. What was traditionally a quieter season throughout winter has now become a busy season for "destination weddings" at SugarLove & White. Here are some favourite shots from the elegant winter wedding of Georgina & Robin which took place at The Tearoom, Gunners Barracks in Mosman. Sweet delicate hairpiece and rich fuschia tulips from Georgina's bouquet.
The Marble Bar (Hilton Sydney) was chosen for a pre wedding photo shoot on the day.
Rain on the window during the ceremony, an interior lamp provides ambient light throughout pre dinner drinks & a ferry drifts along Sydney Harbour past The Tearooms balcony.

Happy "Long" Weekend & Happy Birthday to the Queen. I hope you are enjoying a lovely relaxing day with your loved ones or a getaway in your dream car. Do you have a favourite? I remember falling in love with mine like it was yesterday. Yes dont laugh - the year was 1991, the place was in Jo Beth Taylor's music video "99 reasons" featuring Lochie Daddo and the car was that gorgeous red Mercedes. My dream car today hasn't changed much...i would love a 1960's 190SL Vanilla Convertible Mercedes Roadster.....pretty please... Imagine a honeymoon where time stood still...where you could take a lazy drive through the countryside on a warm spring day...indulge in a delicious picnic for two...must be part of the reason I love this stylish pic of Actress, Emilie de Ravin by Photographer, Jason Bell.

It was a big week for SugarLove co-director, Bradley Patrick who travelled to Tasmania along with some of our photography & video crew for the launch of BOFA. As the "Artistic Director" for the film festival which will move towards cementing itself as one of the biggest events on the Australian film calendar come November 2011, his involvement is not only a combination of many work & personal passions but recognition of his many years working as a professional photographer in Australia. Some press clippings below including an official opening shot with Tasmanian Premier, Lara Giddings.
Some might say - but what does this have to do with weddings? We have always been of the belief that a creatively challenged team at both SugarLove & White means a wealth of experience that more traditional "single focus" companies cannot provide. Our clients regularly acknowledge how our work has a fresh and timeless appeal whilst still delivering on the coverage required for one of the most important days of their lives. Our photographers, cinematographers & editors relish in this philosophy and embrace the benefits it brings to their work. If you would like to learn more about BOFA click on the links throughout. Our official trailer will be uploaded on the BOFA site & SugarLove blog very soon....have a relaxing, safe & inspiring long weekend everyone, Leigh x

"Timeless Elegance" was the theme of Michelle & Martin's wedding day and we are thrilled to share our blog post with one of Australia's premiere bridal sites Polka Dot Bride this week. With SugarLove & White on board to cover their photography & videography and the incredibly talented Anthony Del Col from Staging Connections as their wedding planner we knew the day was going to be a memorable one. Michelle's Vera Wang gown & Jimmy Choo shoes were breathtaking.
It rained for Michelle's arrival at the ceremony but the skies were kind enough to ensure sunshine for all the other important moments outside throughout the day.
An excited flower girl awaits the brides arrival at the church.
The couple chose St Francis of Assisi in Paddington for their vows.
The bride walked down the aisle to Ava Maria played by a string trio Accent Strings who accompanied soprano singer Fiona Treloar.
The bouquets were designed by Maria Lush Flowers.
The couple & their bridal party ventured to the Opera House for their photo shoot which was the perfect location with their reception at Opera Point Marquee just metres away.
The marquee was decorated with alternate flower arrangements, sheer black small Tiffany bows on the back of each chair, blakc & white chandeliers above the tables and special order black goblets.
The couples entrance at the reception along with their bridal party & family was fun filled with lots of laughter and their own special dances.
The couple love fine dining and the service & menu on the night surpassed any of their expectations. The moonlight sparkled on the harbour outside.
A surprise seven minute firework display on the harbour timed perfectly for the cake cutting and has accompanied by their favourite dance tunes.
The couples first dance was to "At Last" by Etta James and performed by a live band. It was an emotional moment for the couple. Soul Nights kept the bridal party & guests on the dance floor with live tunes all night.
